Two goofy cartoon questions

Question 1 :When did "Obsidain" first appear or in what Series ??

Question 2 :I have memories of 2 Transformers animation, not cgi, cartoon segment scenes I think
but I can't place them so I also wanted to know if they ring any bells with somebody??

1 segment I remember seeing had 'Sharkticon' (a real shark-like looking version) appearing in a Episode characterized as a treasure hunter with no affiliation who attacked an Autobot water base,
I think I saw a Blue Helicopter version of Obsidian as part of the same segment or episode??

And the other scene was at the beginning of an Episode where a Decepticon
Starscream i think was sitting on the floor in a hallway looking place inside a base playing Solitaire card game and wouldn't come when Megatron put out a bulletin for everybody to assemble ?

I saw both of these things before I was really a TF fan as just something that happened to have been left on the t.v. by somebody -- it was way after G1 but I had not at that time watched G1 cartoon either -- I had G1 toys but I only really got steadily interested in TF at the time of the Energon series.

Can you remember any other details?

That's why I said the questions were goofy

But I do absolutely remember seeing those 2 things when I was about 10
or so
and I did know the difference between TF and other robots at the time.
I don't know that it was Solitaire but he was sitting on the floor playing a card game
(and wouldn't interrupt it for Megatron : ) and I didn't see any more than the first 2-3 minutes I think we left right after the Deceps assembled.

On the Sharkticon one I came in in the middle and saw half the Episode but that's the only thing I remember happening.

Also my first impression of Obsidian from a long time back was that he was a Blue Helicopter character but
I don't know right now if he had that form until the Universe Toy so I don't know what I ever saw regarding him either. He was the one I was most curious about.

^ Well my brother does have the Universe toy which is a blue double-prop Helicopter -- Unless (since it came as a boxed set of 2) unless the other toy in the box was named Obsidian.

But we got that set a couple years after I thought I first remembered seeing him.

The only cartoon Obsidian was in was Beast Machines, and that was in CGI. No redeco of his toy has been used to represent any other character from any other cartoon.

Here's what he looked like in vehicle mode.

Cool picture

Okay

The Universe Blue one was packaged with Tankor-in-camouflage colors
and that's our set. I was pretty sure they didn't switch the names, you never know these days though ;)

Since they slap older names on a wide variety of vehicles.

oddly enough the tank drone (which most including myself believe to be a better representation of tankor) was re-decked and re-named stockade

A site tracking down listing in pictures the really differing models of each individual character -- in order of production\age would be pretty darn interesting.
